Since 2012 Tennis Canterbury have organised the Wilding Challenge - aimed at players 10 and under as at 30 June. Its is held during the second school term with Christchurch and its surrounds divided into five areas, each then select a team of 5 boys and 3 girls with a reserve for each team.

The five areas are:


Cashmere, Halswell, Spreydon.


Edgeware, Shirley, Burwood Park, Sumner, Opawa, Beckenham, Redcliffs, South Brighton and Mount Pleasant

Central: Waimairi, Elmwood, Te Kura/Hagley Park

North West

These players then compete against the other areas over six Sunday mornings. Each team will play at least 5 matches with all matches played indoors guaranteeing play each week.

The concept has a goal of providing a pathway for our talented players, to give them more competition but in a fun team environment, to bring them together socially and to enhance their coaching opportunities.

There is a cost of $30 per round played for each player which covers Coaching & Ball costs and matches.
